Thank you for your interest in Emilio’s Tapas. Emilio’s Tapas is an authentic Spanish Tapas Bar Restaurant conveniently located in West Suburban Hillside. Spanish cuisine can best be described as a mix of French and Italian influences; tapas are small dishes ideal for appetizers or when ordered in rounds build a complete meal. Our menu consists of regional Spanish specialties, original dishes created by Chef Emilio offered in both dining room, bar and patio (weather permitting) for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is casual with spacious dining rooms and an energetic atmosphere accentuated by colorful Spanish murals, music and tiles.<br />

"Whenever we want a great meal, lots of variety, attentive service, and a handshake from the chef, we head over to Emilio's. We know everybody on the staff from Emilio to his wife Mary Ann to all of the servers and busboys, so it is like a family reunion. On our latest visit, Grouper was one of the hot tapas. Outstanding. Tasted like we were sitting oceanside watching the fishermen unload their catch."

"Specials of the day offer a wide variety of fish and meat dishes, several vegetable options. We ofter go to the regular menu for an old favorite. Emilio and Mary Anne are great hosts and the service staff is wonderful as well."

BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"Food is always good, servers are friendly and knowledgeable, and probably most important, a member of management is always close at hand, making sure everything is going well."

Parkers' Restaurant and Bar is a chef driven, full service, contemporary American restaurant & bar serving lunch, dinner and private functions. The restaurant features fresh fish & seafood along with high quality meat and pasta preparations. The ambiance reflects a relaxed sophistication emphasizing a mosaic tiled, open kitchen adjacent to a refined, 150-seat dining room featuring fabulous hardwood decor. The 50-seat cocktail lounge offers live piano jazz on Thursday-Saturday evenings.

A Re-Concepted Restaurant in the Fabled Carlos’ Space by Carlos and Debbie Nieto. Nieto's is decoratively updated although the gracious wood paneled walls remain. The dining room still has an imtimate feel to it, with a more "club" like atmosphere. The menu is extensive but familiar with modern day tweeks. Comfortable for family gatherings and dates alike.
